In the encounter of Gewandhaus organist Michael Schönheit and multi-instrumentalist P.A. Hülsenbeck, genre-spanning music between sacrality, pop harmony and free improvisation is created.

REAPING FROM THE CONFLUX is a collaboration between Gewandhaus organist Michael Schönheit and multi-instrumentalist P.A. Hülsenbeck. The two musicians come from completely different musical worlds and generations, but both share a great passion for musical experimentation. On the basis of improvisation, which traditionally plays a major role in organ playing, a genre-spanning music between sacrality, pop harmony and free improvisation was created.

P.A. Hülsenbeck plays guitar and electronics in, among others, the indie formation Jungstötter and his own band project (both guests at the International Summer Festival 2019), but has also always been involved with contemporary composers such as Philip Glass or Clara-Lis Coverdale and the infinite sonic expression possibilities of a modular synthesizer. Michael Schönheit is organist in the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and as artistic director also responsible for the Merseburg Organ Festival. From 1998 to 2005 he also directed the Carl-Philipp-Emanuel-Bach-Chor Hamburg, with whom he performed numerous works of the 18th and 19th century oratorio literature. As part of this year's International Summer Festival, there is now the rare opportunity to hear the two live in the beautiful St. Gertrud Church.
